    Are these the photos you had printer up they seem too dark on the web page.

    You could do with Photoshop CS to lighten the shadow detail in the snow
    shots.

    Hi Rob,
    A couple of them are, yeah. There are a couple that aren't on
    the web page that had some foreground stuff with snow caps in the
    background. When I look at the paper copies, there's no detail in the
    snow......just white area with no shadow etc. On screen, you can clearly
    see detail in the snow caps. I think probably the guy brightened up the
    foreground (thinking he was doing me a favour) so that the detail in the
    faces etc was clearer. However, the point of shooting those particular
    photos was to show the snow caps in the background :) Doesn't
    matter......I can always get those particular ones redone darker.

  4. "Routeborne track" should be "Routeburn Track", surely, which consists of
    somewhat much more than a "rainforest area", or are you talking about some
    different area.....?

    I know, I'm a pedant.....

    You're absolutely right.......it's Routeburn.

    Unfortunately, with the little amount of time that we had available to us
    (and the fact that there was still a considerable amount of snow/ice all
    over the place), we couldn't even get to the first hut before we had to turn
    around and head home. I think we only had about 10mins further to walk
    though, which is a shame. We got to just past the falls flats area (I
    think).

    I'm *very* interested in doing the entire thing at some point in the future,
    but I'm told you need to book quite a long way in advance to get a spot, due
    to its popularity......is that right?

    Yes, you need to book well in advance for the Summer tramping season (which is
    of course the busiest) as soon as bookings open the previous July 1, 'tho
    apparently people do it in Winter (definitely no crowded buts sometimes lots of
    snow - and sometimes avalanches).....
